Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 Cup kale shredded
  • 1 Cup purple cabbage sliced thin
  • 1 Cup Napa cabbage sliced thin
  • 1 red pepper cut into thin strips
  • 1 carrot cut into matchsticks
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons green onion sliced thin
  • sesame seeds * optional

Sesame-Ginger Dressing

  • 1/4 Cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce * use gluten free if necessary
  • 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon ginger * I used paste
  • 1 clove garlic minced

Ginger-Sesame Salmon

  • 2 salmon filets * I use Sockeye salmon from Alaska

Instructions

Salad

  • Chop all the ingredients and add to a medium size bowl. 

Sesame-Ginger Dressing

  • Combine all the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and whisk until well combine.  Alternatively, you can add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until combined.  Set aside 2 Tablespoons of the dressing to use on the salmon.

Sesame-Ginger Salmon

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.  
  • Place the salmon on a baking sheet or broiler pan.  Baste with the Sesame-Ginger dressing that you set aside.  
  • Bake for 5 minutes, then add more of the dressing, if desired.  Continue baking for 5-10 more minutes until the salmon is cooked through and flakes apart easily.
  • To serve:  divide the salad between 2 large bowls. Top each salad with a filet of salmon.  Serve with additional Sesame-Ginger Dressing on the side.  Garnish with sesame seeds, if desired.
